7668 is as well (and technically 7659).

7637 spent it's last day in service on a VP block, and will display as a VP bus indefinitely...

Regarding 7637, you are incorrect. if you look at the last block it was on, it was running a Stoney AM rush hour block on the 20 for a very short period of time before it was done.

I didn't notice that, thanks.

It does, however, still display as a VP bus

7808 (which hasn't been active for over a month) is now sitting by the entrance to Anderson Garage.  Not sure whats up with it, but be on the lookout for it.

7979 is no longer MIA.  I spotted it running the Route 80 this morning.  CAD remains dead on it though.

Forgot to do my mid-month scan, so I did it today. There are 2 new MIA buses (not active since May), but there are 8 back!

You forgot to change 7665 back to not MIA.  It was out yesterday on a 2/724 block.

Hmm... Mine's not showing that. I'll redo this when I have better internet. Is anything else incorrect?

1996 New Flyer D40LF #7638 is seen shortly after leaving the Stoney Garage on June 6, 2019:

7638 is still confirmed active as of now!  Spotted and photographed it at the airport today.

I love these busses, I'd hate to see them go almost as much as I would hate to see the original ctrains die.

Well... as of today there are several being hauled away for scrap.

Anyone who has time should try to go near the Navajo Metals scrapyard along Deerfoot Trail SE.  I have tried Recon Metals and Calgary metals along Ogden Road and no CT vehicles were spotted there.
